Your verbal identity should elevate your brand


Sigh. The fake spectacles look is so last year. But two things that never go out of fashion are surprise and delight. That’s why we help brands use lip-smackingly imaginative language to surprise, delight and inspire their audience. We can do the same for you.

You see, a good verbal identity is like a sledgehammer. One that smashes through the barriers between you and your customers. Our mission is to help you use language that demands attention, reflects your business and helps everyone see your brand with clarity - fake glasses or otherwise.

A quick question (with apologies to your graphic designer)...

What's the most important thing about your brand?

Chances are there’s at least one person near you who protects your logo and ‘brand colour palette’ with the ferocious devotion of a mother cheetah protecting her cubs. But looking the part only gets you so far.

It’s your words that tell your story and sell your products. They are the heart and soul of your business. Without the right words – and the right tone of voice – you miss sales and opportunities to engage. So we look at your brand from the words outwards. Then we create a verbal identity that’s uniquely yours. (And as lovable as baby cheetahs.)

We are verbal identity specialists. We answer questions like these...

Where does identity come from?

You can’t say something well unless you have something to say in the first place. A knock-their-socks-off verbal identity is born from attitude: the cause you stand for, the things you hate and that glorious thing the French call raison d’être. Great writing has purpose – and we make sure your purpose shines through in every paragraph, page and blog post.

What We Do

What is a verbal identity document?

Every verbal identity document is different. But by the time we’re through with you, you will have a set of guidelines that explain how best to interact with different audiences, across different media and at different points in the customer journey. The result is a distinctive voice that resonates with the right people, in the right place, at the right time.

Our team has delivered the goods for beard oils, boozers, apps, apartment blocks, fruity waters, nutritional supplements, you name it. Or rather, why not let us do it for you?
